After announcing a 3% price increase for its cars earlier this month, Tesla has now been forced to delay the price rise. Originally meant to come into effect on March 19, the price hike followed a decision to keep Tesla’s physical stores open.

In other Tesla news, refresh your memory of the recently-revealed Model Y.
